6th Connect! European Moldflow User Meeting in Germany
The MF Software GmbH, Darmstadt, Germany, invites all Moldflow users to the sixth Connect! European Moldflow User Meeting from June 23 to June 24, 2015 in Frankfurt, Germany. In the focus of the event should be the comprehensive integration of complex processing and calculation procedures in plastic injection molding simulation.
The host Thomas Wittmann emphasizes that Autodesk will consequently take into account latest developments and trends in the field of injection molding: Moldflow must remain on par with designers’ wide-ranging tasks. Therefore, the 2016 release includes induction heating and velocity-controlled valve gates – to name improvements. Furthermore the simulation of the MuCell process has now been extended to 3D where foaming is calculated over the entire filling process. Also, the 3-D fiber orientation prediction is substantially improved.
Lectures of "Moldflow users" and Moldflow specialists with research and/or industry background, who will share their experience with different solvers, are of crucial importance for the participants. Process simulation of hybrid SMC structures with local continuous fiber reinforcement will be discussed from the Institute of Lightweight Technology at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, which is important for low-cost replacement of metal in the automotive industry. Sabic tackles the question which Moldflow model is the most appropriate for various short glass fiber applications. The Cool FEM analysis is also illuminated from several directions: Husky reviews the gating area, Novo Nordisk uses Moldflow to optimize the amount of water in cooling systems. And the University of Bradford evaluates the various fiber orientation models.
Also OEM may not be missing: Audi will report on their experience with the simulation as a guarantee of timely and reliable start-up of a series tool and presents the different results – better: result qualities - in everyday practice.
Following the seminar (June 25), the organizer is going to provide the chance to earn the first Moldflow certification level.
